assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. they came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are readily available in post-revolutionary libya, and they escalated into a much more violent episode. >> nbc is live for us in benghazi, libya. let's talk about the u.s. officials who are on the ground now. how many of the suspects are in custody and are there any leads on other suspects? >> alex, we had the chance yesterday to speak to libya's president, head of the general national council here. he told us he did agree with ambassador rice on one point. he believes this was a sinister, preplanned attack. this was the hallmark of foreign militants who had come into libya to exploit the security vacuum here and planned a very specific attack against the united
.s. consulate in benghazi. libya's president said today the attack was not the aftermath of a spontaneous outburst of street protests over an anti-islam movie. >> i have no doubts about this. it is a preplanned attack. with criminal intentions. >> reporter: for the first time president magriev said it wasn't just libyans involved in the attack. without giving details he said foreigners participated in planning and orchestrating the assault. >> we have assumptions and we have some information. and all the information that we have now leads to the same direction. >> reporter: one possible reason the u.s. was targeted -- revenge. earlier this year a u.s. drone strike killed one of al qaeda's most senior leaders, a libyan man. since the collapse of the gadhafi regime the libyan government has struggled to maintain security. there are concerns militant groups will exploit the vacuum to launch deadly attacks like the one on the u.s. consulate. today in a statement posted online al qaeda praised the killing of the american ambassador and called for more attacks on u.s. embassies around the world
in the consulate in benghazi in eastern libya, there is a cross border aspect to this story that is making right now in tunis. and another aspect of the story tunisia, like other countries are being hard-hit by the united states to stop the radicalism we see here in wake of the arab spring. they told me they did not see the tunisia step between the protests of the islamist and protestors the other friday that did knowledge damage to the u.s. embassy, and its compound and a school nearby where about a hundred american kids were staying until about two hours before the protest. there with us a demand coming from the americans that the tunisia act against these radicals. and there was a taunt in that too. tunisia looking to america to fork over half a billion dollars in needed money over the next year to payoff loans in this economy. there is a bit of a taunt there too by the united states that, hey you come through there and then maybe we can come through with this. back to the breaking news, we'll get a hard confirm when we get our crew on the ground seeing this. about a thousand security surroun
on benghazi, libya, tuesday. ambassador chris stevens, former navy s.e.a.l.s chris woods and glen doherty were killed in that attack along with sean smith. not long after the attack reports surfaced that it might have been the premeditated work of a radical islamic group retaliating for an american drone strike which had killed an al qaeda command leader. libyan officials said they had taken four men into custody in connection with the attack. they also said they thought the attack was meant to drive a wedge between americans and libyans. this may be true. but even with all that has happened in libya, the bigger challenge for the obama administration may be with what's taking place in egypt. where even before the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya protestors stormed the embassy in cairo and tore down the american flag. egyptian president muhammad morsi did not issue a statement until 24 hours afterwards. although he condemned the attack, he condemned the anti-muslim film. he even asked president obama to, quote, put an end to such behavior. president morsi's initial failure to come out with

the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead. it is now been 17 days since that attack. sources say fbi agents sent to investigate the murders still have not been able to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violatin

to be cautioused on what the president believes about benghazi. this is a president who said in the new york times, that the muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds he has heard at sunset. i guess you have your own opinion of what it sounds like. but it makes one wonder what the president believes about the mushim world. you talk about practicing religion, i wonder if ambassador stevens gets to survive because of a youtube video. it is all a red herring and this doesn't happen on 9/11. and it reminds me, steve and reminds me the president and administration and military trying to characterize the fort hood massacre not far from where i am here in dallas as workplace violence. that is minimizing extremism and secretary of state was a small band of people. if that is a small band, i don't want that on my doorstep. >> steve: no. michael goodwin said whose side are you on? he meets with the muslim brotherhood and yet when netanyahu is in town he doesn't meet with him. >> it was a big story that was lost in the aftermath of the killings at the embassy. when the president said i don't have
